Webster's Universal College Dictionary:
Agnostic: 1) a person who holds that the existence of the ultimate
cause, as a god or God, and the essential nature of things are
unknown AND unknowable.
Actually this definition is different from what I normally believe,
so by this definition I am not an agnostic.
I'll settle for being a Zennist (and extropian) instead.
